Product Description:

Four more horror films from the land down under are collected here. In THE DREAMING, a young doctor is drawn into a string of uncanny events involving the death of a young girl. When an ancient burial ground is discovered, the doctor's increasingly disturbing dreams point to a supernatural explanation. Then Madeline takes a VOYAGE INTO FEAR as she is shaken from her comfortable life by nightmares of her brother's death, eventually leading her to believe he has returned to kill her. Madeline's troubled past turns up in ways that threaten her enviable lifestyle--as well as her life. Captain Keller is THE SURVIVOR, the only person to emerge unscathed from the wreckage of a bombed 747 jetliner. The survival of such an explosion is apparently impossible, leading those involved to an inevitable conclusion. In SNAPSHOT, Angela is caught up in an impenetrable web of intrigue when her nude modeling pictures turn up everywhere in an ad campaign. As she struggles to understand the strange things that keep happening to her, be begins to realize that murder is the only answer.

The Aussie Horror Collection Volume 1 obviously had some care and attention put into it, both in selecting the films and in finding the best prints; consequently, that set is an essential set, a real delight.

This collection, Volume 2, however, is not so good. The films chosen are certainly little-seen Australian horrors--and compared to American horrors of the time, are quite interesting--but some of them are justly little-seen.

For that matter, the transfers are careless pan-and-scans. This really interferes with the experience of enjoying the films, especially the good ones.

Also, unlike Volume 1, Volume 2 is empty in the special features department. Of course there are the obligatory trailers and a 'trivia' feature.

The films themselves:

The Dreaming is a silly movie that attempts to be both a slasher and a Peter Weir-style mystical horror, but it succeeds at neither. Instead it is a slow, pretentious, predictable slasher. 1.5/5

The Survivor is a fascinating movie, directed by David Hemmings, with the lovely Jenny Agutter. It doesn't make a lot of sense and can be a bit dull, but it's still interesting. 2.5/5

Voyage into Fear is a mood-piece, a sort of dark drama that becomes increasingly confusing until everything is explained by a deus ex machina in the last 30 seconds. It's still a pretty good movie, actually. 3/5

Snapshot is, in fact, a very good film about a young girl with low self-esteem (thanks to an unpleasant boss, a horrible mother, and a creepy stalker boyfriend) taken into the modeling industry by a conscienceless society lady. After doing a nude photo shoot, it suddenly seems there's a conspiracy by everyone to drive her mad and possibly to kill her. Unfortunately, this film is subjected to pan-and-scan treatment, too. 4.5/5

For the price at the time of this review ($6.95), this set is worth it; but it's unlikely the viewer will enjoy every film inside.
